Gender and work have no correlation.
Unless body parts specific to gender are required in that particular job, I don’t see why we have female or male-dominated industries. And please don’t start with how men do all the heavy work while women like to sit in the office all day. Because as seen below, even when women try to venture out and do jobs that are usually done by males, nobody is happy about it.
I can’t understand why this is the way it is. We do not live in the ’80s where women are supposed to be in the kitchen while men earn for their hard day’s work. We have moved on as a society and now women are matching men toe to toe when it comes to careers and whatnot. However, it seems many people haven’t really caught on and refuse to acknowledge this development.
#1 We have only just started and I am already unable to handle this nonsense.
#2 Putting aside the gross remark, did he just assume you are not into men?
I’m an attorney, and one morning, I had a meeting with an older male attorney from out of town. When he walked into our building, he mistook me for a receptionist and promptly asked me to make him a cup of coffee.
The look on his face was priceless when I walked into the conference room, handed him the cup of coffee, and introduced myself as his opposing counsel. -alexp
#3 I bet his head will explode when he learns about female physicist or something alike.
#4 While I’m all for revenge, it is sad to see HR did nothing.
#5 Did he think putting it on youtube would net him thousands of views?
It was just a woman working with concrete. it wasn’t like she had grown a new head right there and then. I can’t believe people sometimes.
#6 If I was her, I would never have given him the gift cards back.
#7 Of course, this was a pastor. Why wouldn’t he be?
#8 This is really weird, I have seen numerous woman working in suit stories.
When I worked at Best Buy, I worked in the digital camera and camcorders dept (it was 2004) I would have CUSTOMERS ask to speak with a man because I obviously couldn’t answer their questions about the products.
Thankfully, my store manager was on my side so when the customers asked to speak to a man, I would call him over, he’d listen to everything they had to say, and then when they actually asked him a question he’d look them straight in the face and tell them he didn’t know the answer to their questions but I did because I was his expert.
The looks on the faces of the asshole guys that didn’t want to talk to me in the first place were almost worth it. -caitlin
#9 If it was a funny remark, I might have been less p*ssed but it wasn’t.
#10 How does that even come up in normal conversation?
